Rare brick, temple-and-wing brick Federal, privately set amid mature trees & shrubs. This Richmond landmark comprises beautiful double parlors, 3 fireplaces, kitchen (with original fireplace), butler’s pantry, & sunroom on the first floor; 3 bedrooms (2 with fireplaces) plus home office & 2 baths on the second. Once owned by artist, illustrator, & printmaker Albert Sterner, its crowning features are a hand-done chiarascuro mural of the Erie Canal in the front hall, incised beams in the kitchen, wide-board floors, 6-over-6 windows, & 5 fireplaces. The owners restored key elements, such as new, historically-accurate exterior lighting, a marble front stoop, & exterior doors with brass block locks; they also installed radiant heat beneath the exterior path. A truly exceptional antique home!
